. we voted 32 times to repeal obamacare. obama does care more than i can say for some. we had time for voting to repeal obamacare 32 times, but didn't have any time to offer serious fixes to the economy. and i just want to mention that president obama, to his credit, has done, i think great and excellent work in offering solutions. they simply have been ignored. it's really kind of sad when you think about the fact that the president has offered real serious and important solutions to the problems of the nation and yet they really have not been seriously addressed. for example, the president called us all here and talked about the american jobs act. this is a great piece of legislation. but you know, mr. speaker, we never even had a vote on it. we never even had an opportunity to say who wants the american jobs act. it was simply something that the republican majority in the house wouldn't even address. the fact is, there were great ideas in this bill. and i want to talk about those ideas, because i think they would really do a lot of good. it includes a national infrastructure, a

. he urged speaker boehner to abandon the grand bargain talks with president obama. "the new york times" reported in 2011, "ryan appealed to representative cantor to cut off negotiations between the speaker and the white house because he didn't feel the terms of the emerging agreement adhered strictly enough to his conservative principles and the deal might politically benefit president obama." so, it is not a secret that the ryan budget both hurts the middle class and does nothing for deficit reduction. the only people who would benefit are the very wealthy, and god bless them. they're doing well in america, but as recent statistics just showed, they're the only people gaining income. and one other thing i'd like to add about mr. ryan here: he seems like a nice man, nice family, but his recent speeches have just been so revealing, and he did the same thing yesterday once again showing he has learned nothing from the mistakes he's made in the last few weeks. when it comes to the big debates facing our country, paul ryan either has an extremely poor memory or has a tendency to play fast
